So should we assume that those who got "placeholder nameplates" on their second-run SGM will be receiving their "real" nameplates soon?

Indeed. We should be shipping in 2 or 3 weeks.

Actually what about the "placeholder nameplates" for the first run SGM modules? We were supposed to get replacement nameplates for those as well.

Any word on my replacement SGM?

 

I believe Grazi has answered you on that. Please check your inbox.

OK, I am checking with Grazi and we promise we will have an answer for that until the end of the week. Here is the problem: we sold about 500 SGMs during 1st and 2nd run. Considering that I already lost money for the 1st run, where I had to reprint everything and ended about $4,000 over budget, which I had to pay out of my pocket, replacing that many nameplates now would be a serious financial hit on me. In addition to that, those early SGMs were shipped with a nameplate, which didn't look as good as I had hoped, still it nothing compared to the temporary paper nameplate we used for the last 50 or so modules during the last run. On the other hand I want to make everybody happy with their modules. So please allow us a few days to make the math and see what can be done.

I am perfectly content with my first run SGM's nameplate as I am sure many others are or will be after reading your post above.

I, for one, am happy with the 1st run nameplates and don't need or want a replacement.

But the 2nd run units with the paper ones are definitely getting a replacement?

 

Sure, those are just temporary paper nameplates.

I don't mind paying a for a new name plate, will you make these available to purchase?

 

That could be an option.

I know you had always planned to replace them but I'm not one to kick someone in the wallet so to speak especially after all the work you've done, so if you can make them available to buy for the first run SGMs I'm down with that.

 

Actually doubly down with that since I've got two SGMs that need them.

I'm in agreement with those above, i.e. no big deal about the replacement nameplate for my first run SGM. If one does become available to buy then I'll consider it but I'm not expecting one for free.

We just updated the first post.

A few quick updates. Boxes are going to the printer this week. The good news is that we are also printing some of the future releases, so that should speed up things in the future.

 

We got final proofs for the nameplates and they look great.

 

Received what was supposed to the final PCBs of the new SGM. Unfortunately we made a mistake with the mounting holes, other than that the boards work great. We will need one more run to get those perfect.

Nevertheless we will start the PCB manufacturing process this week as well, which initially involves a lot of talk with the factory to make sure everything goes smoothly.

 

Picture shows, from left to right: Original SGM board, new SGM board, and Super Game Cartridge board.

The new SGM board is about 30% smaller, SCART compatible and sounds slightly better.

Is there any difference in functionality between the new SGM board and old SGM board?

It's compatible with the French SCART CV and sounds slightly better. :evil: :lol: Edited by NIAD

Would be great to get a little more info about how it sounds better.
